Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman, said: “With millions of customers annually staying at our 563 UK hotels, we do get a range of interesting items left behind.

“Interestingly, as we kept some of our hotels open during both lockdowns to support local communities and provide accommodation for key workers, local authorities and for businesses that could travel for work we have seen a rise in items being left behind by medical professionals.

“This includes a stethoscope, scrubs, crocs and a nurse’s personal diary documenting their experience of working through the pandemic plus lots of personalised face masks.”
